I live in North Seattle (Broadview) and travel for living big time. I find myself constantly staying at airport hotels to save time and offset the risk of the worst traffic in the nation as I fight to get to a 6:30am flight. Well, Seattle use to be easy, but now that the cruise industry and a total economic sonic... More

a nice room, easy check in and out. Changed our room to a bottom floor without problems. We didn't think the coffee was very good with the Continental breakfast... and this hotel is just south of Seattle.

We chose to stay here for an event at the Washington State Convention Center so we'd have a quiet place to retire to at night and it was exactly what we got. The room we received was spacious, well-lit, and had a little of a marine theme with regards to decor. Don't expect luxury as this is a budget establishment... More

We needed two inexpensive rooms before putting someone on the plane. It was definitely inexpensive, but the quality of the rooms was very low. The toilet in one of the rooms kept running, and the handle of the toilet dangled loosely. The hot water for the tub was a rusty brown color. The mattress sheet was paper thin, and underneath...

This is a very good hotel to stay at' especially for the price. The room we had was a king bed, a bit firm but still slept well. Room was clean and linens were also. They should update their coffee pot though, it has seen a long history of use. Shower was good. Pressure was good and temperature stayed warm.... More

On the quiet side of Sea Tac airport area (south and west of SEA). Lowest rate if booked at their website. Email quote was higher. $15 shuttle to/from SeaTac a bit high but I got a ride. Just a short walk to the Des Moines Pier and Poverty Bay. Enjoy a meal at Anthony's overlooking Puget Sound (near the hotel)... More

Really nice, comfortable place, far from the hustle of Seattle but close enough to go to either Seattle or Tacoma very easily. Des Moines is a wonderful, old, "seaside" kind of town with some good restaurants and a nice view of the sound and a very nice beach park. The Marina Inn staff are working to get new tile and...

Pros - Great staff. Clean hotel. Jacuzzi tub works. Excellent internet service (way better than ANY resort hotel I've been in ). Great price! Cons - Jacuzzi room has no door to the bathroom, shower stall is very small, and no storage for your bathroom items. Bed was okay but not all that comfortable. I would def. stay here again.... More

I spent 5 days in this hotel over the span of a week, meaning I did the check-in/check-out thing twice. The first stay was one night, and we were incredibly impressed. We showed up fairly late, but the check-in was quick and easy. The person working the desk was nice and helpful, and we were pleasantly surprised with the room.... More

I really wanted to give this hotel 4 stats ( I reserve 5 stars for ultimate rate vs customer service vs cleanliness, 1 for just dont) located in a comfy little block, near restaurants, the water and navigatable to 405 or 5, the marina inn has a good starting point to be a good hotel. Clean linen (neatly folded and... More

The customer booked a double queen bed room through Booking.com. The listed price for this is $69.00, plus tax ($76.25). This is the price the guest paid upon check-in, This is the price Booking-com verified for the room. If the guest had a different price quote, from Booking.com (official, original copy). we would have honored it. The ten dollar cheaper... More
